No amount of compensation can make up for the potentially life-changing consequences of medical malpractice, but it can help you cope with a serious injury or loss of a loved one. If you believe that a medical professional or healthcare facility has failed to provide adequate treatment or follow accepted standards of practice, don’t wait to schedule your free consultation. Contact our medical malpractice lawyers in Orange Park at 904-251-1111 or 800-251-1111 today.
All healthcare providers—such as doctors, dentists, pharmacists, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities—are required to provide competent care to the best of their abilities. If a medical service provider fails to maintain a reasonable standard of care and a patient is injured as a result, malpractice may have occurred.
Note that an unsuccessful result from surgery or a medical treatment is not malpractice and does not mean a patient can file a lawsuit to seek compensation. Medical malpractice is limited to an occurrence in which a healthcare provider does not deliver a proper standard of care or does not act in an acceptable manner. Some examples of medical malpractice include, but are not limited to:
Most people aren’t aware that there is a statute of limitations for medical malpractice lawsuits in Florida: In most cases, you have only two years from the date on which the injury or harm was (or should have reasonably been) discovered to file a lawsuit, so our medical malpractice attorneys will act promptly on your behalf. We have the experience and resources needed to investigate and litigate your medical malpractice lawsuit, including on-staff nurse consultants.
We know how deeply our clients and their loved ones are personally affected by medical malpractice, and we treat our clients like family. Our attorneys and staff work closely with you every step of the way, from your initial consultation to determine if you have a case through filing and litigating your case.
